Bloodsong

An Album By

Sound the Ruin

Review by

Chaotic hardcore, probably most popularized by the Dillinger Escape Plan with The Chariot as a generation of influence, is a tough love. You know it grooves, but you can’t ever find it the first time. You get beat down by it before see success. It’s one of the best spawns of punk rock, and, as metalcore embraces the mosh, the math equations you have to decipher embraces the spirit of anarchy, a concept and song structure designed to be fluid, oftentimes affected by its surroundings.

Sound the Ruin lifts a heavy torch with Bloodsong, but it’s easily one of the best releases the genre has seen this year. The band’s dedication to chaos until the end is admirable in the face of a mosh generation. I wouldn’t miss a full-length by them.
